Assistant Senior Patrol Leader
As Assistant Senior Patrol Leader (ASPL) of the Westark Area Council's Troop 214, I will be especially mindful of conducting myself by the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout Motto and Scout Slogan.
I will lead by example, and I make these commitments to my fellow Scouts, the Scoutmasters, and myself. I will:
  1. Report to the Senior Patrol Leader (SPL);

  2. Help the SPL plan and run the Troop's meetings, campouts and outings. Serve temporarily in his role when the SPL is absent;

  3. Attend Troop Youth Leader training as specified by the Scoutmaster;

  4. Attend at least 75% of all troop meetings and Patrol Leader Councils during my tenure as Assistant Senior Patrol Leader;

  5. Attend at least 50% of all troop outings and service projects during my tenure as Assistant Senior Patrol Leader;

  6. Along with the Scoutmaster and SPL, help supervise the activities of the following troop leaders:

    1. Bugler

    2. Librarian

    3. Scribe

    4. Troop Guide

  7. Help the SPL keep the Troop's patrol leaders informed of all important Troop information;

  8. Be on time and ready for meetings and other troop activities, and tell the SPL as soon as I know that I can't make a meeting or event;

  9. Wear the proper uniform at Troop meetings and events;

  10. Help the SPL plan, coordinate and run Courts of Honor unless this responsibility is delegated to another scout by the Scoutmaster;

  11. Help other scouts whenever possible and be especially supportive of younger and less experienced scouts;

  12. Have fun and help other scouts have fun too!

  13. Set an appointment with the Scoutmaster when nearing the end of my tenure as Assistant Senior Patrol Leader to review my success in meeting the commitments set forth in this position contract.

I understand that I will receive FULL leadership credit if I follow the above stated commitments. I may only receive partial credit if the above commitments are not met.
